Canna 'Musifolia'

If you like your cannas big, you'll love this one. The huge leaves really do look like leaves of one of the smaller bananas: the botanical name musifolia is derived from the Latin for banana and leaf. An image of the inflorescence is included: it's a bit of an afterthought hidden on top of that mound of foliage.

The clump shown is now about six feet high: under ideal conditions it can add several feet more.
